+  The Failed Turkey Coup: What was the Involvement of the Gulen Movement?

  • Description: Turkish authorities continue to crack down on suspected participants in Friday night’s failed coup. Much of the blame has been cast on cleric Fethullah Gulen, a longtime rival of President Recep Erdogan who has been living in self-imposed exile in the US. Yesterday, Turkey formally requested Gulen’s extradition. What is the Gulen movement, and what role did it play in the attempted takeover? We’ll talk with Gabriel Reynolds.

+  The War on Cops Makes us Less Safe

  • Description: Violent crime rose in 2015 after two decades of decline. Homicides jumped nearly 17 percent in the country’s largest 50 cities, the biggest one-year increase since 1993. Heather Mac Donald attributes this to the “Ferguson Effect,” the idea that police have been backing off of proactive policing since the death of Michael Brown two years ago. We’ll talk about it with her today.
